froggy went a courtin'

spring peepers
one of my favorite springtime sounds are the chorus of spring peepers.  since we live in town, i don't get to hear them as much as when we lived in the country.  our new favorite CD to listen to in the car is The Calls of Frogs and Toads,  by Lang Elliott.  i didn't realize how different the calls were for each species.  don't all frogs say "ribbit, ribbit?"  the theme for The Three Muses this week is "music, music, music."  my spring peepers are doing their "advertisement  call" for the lucky female in the tree.

Tammy, your picture is absolutely delightful and I have so enjoyed the story that goes with it. I wish we had peepers in this part of the world. Lots of ribbit ribbits and some mournful bullfrog croaks but no peepers.
Superb artwork and a wonderful imagination at work. Fantastic.

Oh no Tammy, I shall be singing : Mr Froggy went a courting, all day now! :O) I know what you mean though, we have a froggy pond and the sound of them all croaking in the Spring is fantastic. Great piece and great take on the theme.
